Yesterday my friend Helen came over and we had planned to go on a little road trip. We started off in Wickham Market, and we called into Quilters Haven where I bought some fabric for a sewing project (this will go with a bundle of fabric that Lynette gave me when I went to the FoQ last month), a "hex and more"ruler (I've wanted one of these for ages) and another bottle of stay press (this is just wonderful at getting creases out of fabric - I even caught Mr F using it when he was ironing his shirts!!) then we drove over to Bungay. First stop there was Sew and So's, where they had a wonderful display of Lynette Anderson's range of Christmas fabric, "Candy Cane Angels"and a lovely display of her "Wildflower Wood" collection too....
.....I needed some fabric to team with a couple of Lecien prints that I already had, and this sage green print goes perfectly with both fabrics - this will be used for binding and lining for cosmetic bags. I was nearly tempted to get some of the new "Flower Sugar" Lecien collection and some of the new Tilda prints too but I decided to wait until my next trip for that. Oooh and yes did you notice this lovely red bag in the background? It looked so lonely siting in the window at Sew and So's and it will be perfect for my Bernina sewing machine to live in!! I just couldn't resist it! After our little shopping spree, we went for lunch at Earsham Street Cafe, where we both had courgette and sun-blushed tomato tart with lentils and salad, followed by the MOST delicious lemon bread and butter pudding. What a super day out! Now please excuse me while I go and play with my new fabric!!
